An efficient build/couple/pair approach to diversity-oriented synthesis was employed to access several structurally complex macrolactams. In this paper, we describe the successful evaluation of ring-closing metathesis toward the systematic generation of skeletal diversity. By appropriately varying the nature and chain length of the alkenol fragment, a diverse collection of 13- to 18-membered macrolactams were obtained.
